Organic Life Guru is filming a 2 week Permaculture Design Course with Scott Pittman! We need your help bringing this project to life and turning it into an online course available worldwide!

Permaculture Design Courses normally cost $1,000 - $2,000 plus the expense of travel to the location. Our mission at Organic Life Guru is to make the course material available to anyone anywhere in the world for cheaper in a go-at-your-own-pace model.

Click on the Kickstarter link below the video and explore what you get when you contribute to the project.

Scott has taught permaculture since 1985 in over 28 countries on four continents.

Funding a piece of this project is a great way to get access to some or all of the permaculture design course. Details on the Kickstarter page ...



Thank you for your interest in this online permaculture design course project, and thank you for helping grow the permaculture movement!

Also a special thanks to those who have already contributed to the project in Kickstarter!

I'm curious ...

Would you rather have access to a 100 hour Permaculture Design Course on DVD or Streaming Video (Online Video in a "members only" area of a website)?

Why?

Thanks for your feedback!

Chris and Sam

Geoff Lawton's Online PDC offered both DVD & streaming & he answered tons of questions. Lots of people here took the course and loved it, myself included. Browse through this thread to get an idea of peoples thoughts.

You may find yourself squeezed between Geoff's high-end course and some of the free ones available online. Then again, there may be a sweet spot for you.

In hindsight I think we should have waited to launch the online permaculture design course project on Kickstarter until we had more video footage from the actual course like this intro piece:



Only 8 days left to see if we meet our goal on kickstarter ...

No matter what, we'll finish producing the online permaculture design course. The course content is fantastic and the video/audio quality is super high. It will just take more time and funding support from income from my web design business.

Thanks for pointing me to this thread CJ!

It looks like a lot of people in the world with slow internet connections or for other reasons don't want streaming video courses.

We've decided to open up the option for anyone to get Organic Life Guru courses shipped to them anywhere in the world on a thumb drive: http://organiclifeguru.com/get-courses-by-mail/
 
We don't have time to be charming! Quick, read this tiny ad:
